They want to honour the memory of murdered journalist Ján Kuciak and his fiancée Martina Kušnírová on the eve of their wedding that was supposed to take place on May 5, organisers said for the newswire. On Friday, May 4, they will organise meetings in various towns and cities across the country to this effect.

According to the organisers, Slovak farmers are set to join the initiative by taking to the streets in their agriculture vehicles on Friday.

“The For a Decent Slovakia civic initiative calls for a permanent change in the country,” they stated, as cited by TASR. “We realise that it won’t happen in one day, and that is why we will do our best to make Slovakia a better, more just and more decent country, either after an early election or a regular general election. We will point to both nationwide and regional issues, since we’re an initiative of people from all over Slovakia.”

The organisers stressed that politics must be a service to all people.

The gatherings will take place in these towns and cities in Slovakia:
